Yes. This can be a little confusing as the 135° is measured on the outside while the 45° is measured on the inside; in effect one in the same when using our 135° degree Bar Rail Radius Corners.

Use the 135 degree corner to create a cropped corner on a bar top or bar front as shown.

Pictured below is another option for ending our Chicago Bar Rail Molding by mitering the molding back to itself.

No. Often times on home & commercial bars the glass rail & drip edge is not included. See cross section diagram on how to do this.


We recommend 5” to 6” extra per miter on our BR475, BR475-S & BR550 series bar rails and about 3” for our BR158 to be on the safe side.

Good question. Since the bar rail is cut from 1 long piece the grain matches up perfectly and the seam fades into the back ground this is a great way to purchase long lengths & save money on the shipping.

Yes! Please see our video below on modifying an existing square bar top.

Safety first, always wear eye protection and use clamps or fixtures to hold the molding securely in place when cutting. Unsure? Contact us before you cut.
